Application Window Opens July 1, 2018!

In January of 2018, a class of more than 50 dedicated individuals took their first steps toward a career in the fire service.

These cadets, who made up the inaugural class of the Cal-JAC Academy, were selected from a pool of more than 200 applicants to participate in California’s first fire-service, pre-apprenticeship program.

Over the course of the academy, these cadets took the entry-level steps needed to launch a career as a firefighter, including the entry-level physical and written testing requirements and completion of a nationally registered Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) course.

Since they completed this rigorous and comprehensive pathway into the fire service, they earned a guaranteed oral interview with the Sacramento Fire Department, and have been placed on the Firefighter Candidate Testing Center’s Statewide Eligibility List, which is used by more than 80 California fire departments when it comes time to hire.
